I used to de-grease the engine in my 74 Super every few months. Wrecked it, now that motor is in the 70, and I havn't cleaned it since.

Looks like $20 to get in this year. Another $5 if you want to park your bug in the pit area. Parking outside is free. If gas money is tight, you can ride down with us. We'll make room for you! Watching Eric Callabrese's Red Baron bug go almost 200mph is worth the $20 admission for me!

Spencer, here is a direct link to "How to Keep Your VW Alive" books on Amazon, where there's always good deal on the spiral bound copies. There's copies on now as low as $8.75.

This is something you need to have.

Does it matter when the book was published?

The earlier ones seem to be more "pure Muir." Updates tended to be for other models.

The early ones usually fetch premium prices, so any 1975 and later should work for you and your Super.

I take it that means nothing done yet.
If you can do Dow Scrubbing Bubbles in the bathroom, you can do this.

If it was really gunky, that's to be expected. Be much nicer to work on clean. Will also run cooler.
